Deep Coral Reefs In The Hawaii Island Provide The Habitat For Shallow Reef Fishes.
A recent study unveils how the deep coral reefs in the Hawaii Island play a significant role in conserving the shallow reef fishes.
The reef fish biodiversity heavily depends on the shallow coral reefs.
More clearly, the deep coral reefs are the safe destination for the shallow coral reef fishes.
For a long time, this mesmerizing island is regarded one of the best destinations for the aquarium fish trading business.
Cori Kane and a group of student divers took the initiatives to reach more than 100 feet below the surface.
The researchers documented the existing reef fishes around the deep coral reefs.
The new research of Cori Kane is regarded as the first study about the mesophotic coral reefs that exist on the Hawaii Island, Phys.org reported.
Fishes that belong to the upper portion of the mesophotic reef system are almost similar to those fishes exist in the shallow waters.
It is quite clear that this current research study explores many important facts about the coral reef world of the Hawaii Island.
